Kate McKinnon's Mueller Delivers Bad News About Trump À La 'The Bachelor'


Cecily Strong played a destraught Rebecca Kufrin, the jilted victor of this season's "Bachelor, " and Kate McKinnon played Mueller.

"The reality is that I don't think I can give you everything that you want right now", McKinnon said as Mueller.

"So. What, you don't have Trump on collusion?" "Collusion is literally the only thing I've been looking forward to for the past year". "Oh my God, I have to wait two more years for him to be out of office?" "I was ready to do the damn thing".

The skit alludes to Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into allegations Trump colluded with Russian Federation to win the 2016 presidential, and may have obstructed justice by actions including the firing of FBI director James Comey.

If you thought this week's Bachelor breakup was tough to watch... this week's SNL cold open might be even tougher.

"Honestly, probably six", says Mueller.

After a lot of crying in the bathroom and anxious, nervous silence, Kufrin asked the question on many viewers minds: "So that's it?"

As the bleak news settles in - depicted via split-screen, just like The Bachelor break-up - a dashed Becca asks, "So that's it, he's just going to be president?..." Her Mueller impression isn't as dead-on or memorable as Sessions or Kellyanne Conway (more on her later), possibly because no one really knows what Mueller looks or talks like.

The Bachelor was frequently cited as a metaphor for politics in the last few days of Trump news, particularly because of the recent developments on the president's affair with Stormy Daniels.

Later in the evening, SNL offered up a sendup of NBC's drama This is Us, which Saturday's host, Sterling K. Brown, stars in.

Pete Davidson played Jared Kushner and Aidy Bryant played the role of White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders in the parody. But this skit might just make me cue it up.
